I did an ONLINE cooking class during the pandemic with prof Jason Inniss. I left not only a much better cook but also inspired by food and the role it plays in our culture. Inniss lives on an organic farm with his family and was enthusiastic and so, so knowledgable. I can't recommend this class enough.

The nursing program is more challenging than other schools, and there is no point in studying here as you will not get paid more for more challenging studies. This program is more difficult because I compared my school work with a friend who went elsewhere. George Brown's nursing faculty are also not good; quite a few instructors and coordinators do not care about students- there are many many traumatized students from their experience with GBC nursing faculty.
